Publisher's Summary

Rory Miller's Facing Violence: Preparing for the Unexpected includes seven elements that must be addressed to bring self-defense training to something approaching complete. These elements are: legal and ethical implications, violence dynamics, avoidance, counter-ambush, breaking the freeze, the fight itself, and the aftermath. Training that dismisses any of these areas leaves you vulnerable.

    "Excellent! Thought-provoking and insightful"

    It is a perfect beginning for getting ready to face violence, which as you learn in the book is much much more than training in martial arts. Both content and the narrator are excellent. The whole is written and read in a matter-of-fact no-nonsense manner, with clear-cut insightful observations. I highly recommend it

    "Excellent book"

    This book provides much gold in the sense of knowledge attained the hard way. You would do well to read and or listen to this book if you serve in a public safety capacity or a person who trains in self defense.
